Tips from locals
There are actually two Kailua locations. One on the North end of Kailua Beach Park and the other in Kailua Town just as you enter Kailua from the Pali Highway on the North side of the road. They have the best muffins I have ever tasted! Get them before your excursions. The burgers are excellent.
Great spot for lunch. Dinner is a great spot for a date! Food is always phenomenal. Can get busy, so go early!
-Kalapawai cafe has amazing salads + sandwiches! My husband stops what seems like regularly to grab their french dip sandwich. Not a local dish, but my gosh it's good.

“Buzz Lanikai is a great place to eat after a long day at the beach. It is directly across from Kailua Beach Park. It's a little place, However, the food is quite good and the staff is awesome. You can meet many Kailua and Lanikai locals here. If you like ice cream pies, they are very good. Parking is very limited in their lot, but there is ample parking across the street at the Beach Park. (Don't leave valuables in your car.)”
